snipshot_9419ronox5li.jpgAnd in this corner….the Australian Government has hit back at Pink’s Campaign to Boycott Australian Wool. The rocker has gone on the offensive with animal rights group PETA to stop sheep cruelty and find more humane alternatives to the practice of “mulesing” (where chunks of skin are carved from a sheep’s backside without any pain relief).

Australian Treasurer Peter Costello claims the practice is necessary to prevent fatal maggot infestations. He says, “Pink is entitled to her views but at the end of the day would Australia’s farmers take advice from Pink? Sheep are at risk of being fly-blown and dying… it’s not a pretty sight. Mulesing is not a pretty sight either but it’s a damn sight more humane than letting a sheep die fly-blown in a paddock.”

Hmm…while the practice seems legit, shouldn’t there be some way of making it less painful for the sheep? And what about the cruelty of transporting sheep in tightly packed spaces for thousands of miles? Interesting how there’s little Costello can do to defend that particular aspect of the industry. I smell fear.
